Some students struggling trying to find the balance between the demands of a high echelon Division I athletics program and the academic rigors associated with a student’s major curriculum, but imagine having to balance athletics with not just one but two separate curriculums in two very demanding degree programs. That is exactly what Brittany DePoi has done throughout her undergraduate career. Brittany will be graduating in May with two degree, a Bachelor of Science from the School of Engineering in Biomedical Engineering AND a second Bachelor of Science from the School of Engineering in Computer Science and Engineering.
She will be leaving the University with a wealth of knowledge and experiences she gained from both her athletic and academic obligations. As an athletic Brittany began her career as in the Novice 8, placing first at the Knecht Cup Regatta, second at the Big East Championships and first at the prestigious Dad Vail Regatta.
She has continued reaching high levels of success on the water, placing third at the Head of the Charles and the Head of the Fish while begin named to the Big East First team in 2010-11 as a member of the varsity 8. Academically, Brittany has been named to the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll every semester of enrollment and has been named to the Dean’s List in the School of Engineering four times.
Brittany’s work ethic and dedication to both her academics and athletics is second to none and we are pleased to recognize her on National Student-Athlete Day.
